Home Run

Just when life throws you a curve ball (or 2 or 20), along comes a pinch hitter, and she knocks it out of the park! Or in this case, she sends a thoughtful care package to a gal who was down in the count, and who just needed a lift. (Remember our issues with water and flooding and root canals in this post??) Anyway, my pinch hitter, Marydon over at Blushing Rose, sent this care package recently, and boy did it make my day. When I opened the envelope, I just sat in my car overwhelmed by her sweet, thoughtful gesture. The "first aid kit" contained a personal note, some wonderful tea with infuser, a fragrant sachet, and even a bandaid!!

Thanks Marydon!! I'm glad you're on my team. :)

"Tooth or Dare"

Addendum to this post.
[I don't know what it is about our town lately but here it is, another story from our local newspaper involving crime and teeth. Teeth, of all things! And crime. What's up with that?? In all honestly, mostly I'm just posting this article so I can use my ridiculously bad pun, "Tooth or Dare." Or maybe I should have used this one: "Tooth or Consequences"!! Or what about this: "Tooth is Stranger Than Friction"!! HAHA!!! I probably need to stop now. It's only funny until someone gets hurt. So.......at the risk of being type-cast as just another blog about 'dental-hijinks,' here we go. Oh, wait, what about, "Tooth's Company, Three's a Crowd." Okay, that's it.....I promise!! ~cn]

Man loses tooth in 'boy band' insult
A man called police on Friday to file a report about a fight downtown last Wednesday that left him without a front tooth, according to Athens-Clarke police.
The victim - an underage University of Georgia student - was outside Boar's Head, 260 Washington St., about 2:30 a.m., when he told a group of young men they looked like a boy band, according to the officer's report.
One member of the group punched the victim in the mouth, knocking out one of his front teeth, the victim told police. He sought medical attention, but could not save the tooth and has spent thousands of dollars for treatment since the Sept. 2 fight, he told the officer.

[P.S. Kinda makes you want to go brush your teeth, or floss or something, doesn't it? ~cn]

I'm Pretty Sure They're Not One Size Fits All

[So I'm back again with another installment from my "Weird and Wacky Local News File." Maybe this story struck me as funny today because, if you've checked in here recently, you know that the Nash-clan has been dealing with our own issues with wayward teeth and braces and softballs and subsequent root canals; or maybe it was the attention-grabbing headline that had me spewing my morning coffee (good job, Mr. Editor.) Either way, I think this article probably ranks right up there with other similar stories of quirky thievery here and here. .~cn]


Thief makes off with man's teeth
Athens Banner-Herald Story updated at 11:21 pm on 9/1/2009
A man lost his false teeth, cell phone and briefcase when a thief broke into his car while it was parked outside his home at The Park on West Broad, 2360 W. Broad St., between 2:30 and 9:15 a.m. Monday, Athens-Clarke police said.
Someone got into the car through the sunroof to steal the belongings, valued at $1,429, according to police.

[P.S. The question begs to be asked: Do you think that maybe this was just a case of an overzealous Tooth Fairy?? I'm just asking. . . . :)]
